Good pic. it's always difficult to get those birds in the bushes and trees. I have spent some time trying to get Warblers and parulas in the trees, bunch of little brats hiding behind branches and mocking me.   But I digress and will stop venting my troubles.  You did a good job with the robin and it looks like you got pretty close to him too.   :)

Nice one, David.

Looks to me as if you got focus on his eye in spite of that leaf.

Nice shot David but it could be even better without the distracting leaf and if you had included the entire tail of the Robin.

Very nice!  I was going to say it looked a little soft but on the flickr side of things its much more sharp.  One trick I have learned when shooting brids in foliage is take many, many shots.  In photoshop you can then do some cut and paste to deal with problems like the leaf making it appear behind the bird instead of the front.
